Religion Minor

Five courses are required for the minor in religion. Students are encouraged to choose a sequence of courses in consultation with the department of Philosophy and Religion to suit their specific needs. All students in the minor are required to take two courses with a REL prefix. The three additional courses may include any courses that have a REL prefix or other courses approved by the department.

(Students should consult with Pierre Le Morvan, the department’s religious studies adviser, as to whether other religion-oriented courses at the College or elsewhere may be counted ­toward the minor.)
